Registration & Payments
Students may register in person or online at www.thehanovertheatre.org/conservatory. Students and parents (when applicable) must agree to The Hanover Theatre Conservatory Policies and Procedures in order to enroll in a class. These can be found at www.thehanovertheatre.org/conservatory-policies. Payment may be made in full at the time of registration, or you may call the box office to arrange for two 50% payments. The Hanover Theatre Conservatory will work with families in need of additional payment plans, but this option will incur a 5% fee.
Cancellations & Make-Up Classes
Classes cancelled by the Conservatory will be rescheduled. If students are unable to attend the make-up date, special arrangements can be made with administration to attend another group class in that same semester. The Hanover Theatre Conservatory reserves the right to assign substitute teachers for group or private lessons, without advance notification to parents and students. Every effort is made to operate classes on regularly scheduled days and times in order to avoid cancellations.
Withdrawal & Refunds
The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts has a final sale policy for all ticket purchases, tuition payments and fees. No refunds are issued for missed classes, schedule changes, class transfers, student withdrawals, or students under disciplinary action. Requests to transfer or withdraw from classes must be submitted in writing to the Conservatory for review and consideration to revise enrollment or allow pro-rated tuition credit. Approved tuition credits may be used for future classes or programs only, and cannot be used for tickets or other merchandise. Tuition credits expire if not used by the end of the following semester.
Attendance & Tardiness
Consistent attendance is crucial to the learning process. Please notify the Director of Education in advance regarding planned absences, and contact us promptly to advise if students will be late, absent or out sick. Tardiness is very disruptive to class, so please make every effort to be on time. No more than two unexcused absences will be permitted. Students should carefully review their schedules with parents before registering.
Private Lesson Cancellation
If a student needs to cancel a lesson, 24-hour notice must be given. The student can then reschedule the lesson within the semester. If 24-hour notice is not given, or a student does not show up for a lesson, no make-up lesson will be given. Missed lessons are non-refundable and non-transferable.
